‘Breathe’ is a documentary about the female inmates at the penitentiary of Can Brians 1. The film gives a voice to imprisoned women and reflects on the current prison system exploring if the judicial system is favorable to women from a health care, hygiene and bioethics point of view. ‘Breathe’ is committed to a realistic and direct filmmaking process to portrait life in a penitentiary. How do you live life in the absence of freedom? The film vindicates these women as the subject of speech because they are often silenced.
